Surface Stabilized InP/GaP/ZnS Quantum Dots with Mg Ions for WLED Application
One of the most highlighted cadmium-free quantum dots (QDs), InP-based QDs, have improved their optical properties. However, InP-based QDs have some practical drawbacks, for example, stability, compared with CdSe-based QDs. Poor stability of InP-based QDs yields critical problems, such as agglomeration and photoluminescence quenching in light emitting diode (LED). It has to be solved for applications and most research has focused on thick outer shells as an effective solution. We introduced magnesium cations for improving stability of InP-based QDs. We applied very small amounts of Mg cations as surface stabilizers, as a result, stability of QDs is clearly improved. Then, QD based LED chips also yield improved values including RA of 84.4, CCT of 3799 K, and luminous efficiency of 129.57 lm/W, which are highly improved data compared with our previous results.
